Law Enforcement Torch Run

The Law Enforcement Torch Run® (LETR) is the largest grassroots fundraiser and public awareness vehicle for Special Olympics in the world. The Minnesota LETR is supported by the Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association and Minnesota Fraternal Order of Police.

The Law Enforcement Torch Run holds many events for Special Olympics Minnesota throughout the year. During the Final Leg, law enforcement officers and SOMN athletes carry the “Flame of Hope” through their towns to Summer Games. LETR members also volunteer at Area, Regional and State competitions and participate in many fundraisers.
